Description

Great Wall begins and ends on the south side of the Huston Wyeth Park's parking lot. It is a two-way multi-use trail so riders may encounter foot traffic along the way. Due to the extreme slope of the hillside that this trail was built on, riders have to use some awareness when approaching blind turns. It is built to cater to the fun factor in either direction. However, it's best ridden clockwise to experience its full potential.

Two key design elements send the fun and flow to the next level. First, in many turns, backslopes were specifically designed to be used as berms allowing riders to surf through the trees. Second, in several other turns, the backslopes have been turned into optional hip jumps.

The final steep climb on Great Wall, returning to the start, is a crushed limestone section. This is the main reason that it's best ridden clockwise.

Very close to the midpoint of the loop, is the namesake of the trail. Just above the hairpin turn that starts the lower line, is a thirteen feet deep bench cut. It is impressive to see and this loop would have been impossible without it.
